and applause ] you know, next to ann romney, paul ryan is the best choice i have ever made, i got to tell you. now, we're just entering the final weekend of the campaign, and as you know at the obama rallies they're shouting four more years, four more years, and i just heard you, we're shouting four more days, and we're so very grateful to you and people across the country for all you've done to give yourselves to this campaign. this is not just about paul and me, this is about america, about the future we're going to leave to our children. we thank you, and we ask you to stay all the way to the if ininitial line because we're going to win on tuesday night.
